Gingerbread House Quiltalong

I was recently invited to join in with the Gingerbread House Quilt-along hosted by Love Patchwork & Quilting Magazine. The pattern is by Gracey Larson of Burlap and Blossom Patterns. I decided to opt to make the Candy Cane block. I sadly didn’t have time to make the whole beautiful quilt so I made a cushion instead, just added some extra borders, a couple of holly leaves and a piped edging.

Of course the piped edging had to be red and white candy cane stripes!! I do love piped edging don’t you!?

Here is a close up of those holly leaves. You’ll be seeing them again soon on my new Christmas pattern.
